MARTA Raises Fares

For the last 30 years, MARTA has been by our side. That loving friend who takes you to the airport for a relatively small cost and the ability to not have to leave your car at some ridiculously expensive pay lot. For others, MARTA is a lifeline. MARTA’s inefficiency and lack of funding make it one of the least effective and minimal reaching public transit systems in the United States. As a student, gas and wear and tear on a car are expensive and inefficient, therefore I take advantage of Atlanta’s pathetic excuse for transit to get to university and back. Luckily I live right by one of the north lines and ride MARTA right to 5 Points Station, which resides 2 blocks from Georgia State University. What MARTA needs is a driving force in the Georgia Legislature to get more funding and expand services and geographical reach. For more information on MARTA, visit www.itsmarta.com
